Published by at 8:36 am under Recipes,Vegetarian

My 4th and final “Side dish recipe” for the Memorial Day Weekend is a crunchy and scrumptious Asian Slaw.  This will also do well for both vegi’s and carnivores alike.


What you need:

  • 4 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1tsp. grated lime peel
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. Thai fish sauce
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 lb. fresh snow peas, halved crosswise (about 1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup red bell peppers
  • 1/3 cup yellow bell peppers


1. For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together oil, lime peel, lime juice, vinegar, fish sauce and sugar.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine green and red cabbage, snow peas, green onions, and red and yellow bell peppers; mix well.  Drizzle dressing over vegetables; toss to coat.

Serves about 6.

Simple recipe, and only about 95 calories!
